I am a junior in high school looking to get into the mechanical engineering field. I have a college research project where I need to find information about the career I wish to do. Part of the project involves me interviewing someone already in the field I have chosen. It's just a few simple questions, and I would greatly appreciate it if someone could answer these. Thanks in advance. What is your job title and where do you work? Do you know an average starting salary? If you wouldn't mind, could you state yours? How long have you been in the engineering field? What type of equipment do you work with on a day to day basis? Is what you do very stressful? If so, do you have any tips on how to cope with it? Is it hard to balance your work life with your personal life? What do you like most about your job? What do you like least about your job? What is an expected time line for career advancement? Did you find going through college difficult? Do you have any tips on how to adjust with the classes? Was it hard to find a job once out of college? What advice would you give a student planning on entering this career? Again, thanks in advance, and I hope it isn't too much!
